It’s not just young people graduating from high schools, colleges, and even graduate schools this June. Lots of adults are now on the path to recreating dream careers in the encore of their lives. Personal Development Expert Dr. Susan O’Malley shares some timely success strategies in her book, Tough Cookies Don’t Crumble: Turn Set-Backs into Success, available in paperback or as a digital download on Amazon.
Once a college drop-out and secretary, Dr. O’Malley started medical school at age 35, six months pregnant and unwed. At 50, she walked away from a career as an ER doctor to open a medical spa. With no business training, she put a $75 ad in the newspaper and sat at the reception desk herself. She took her own “Row your own boat, baby” advice to grow that business into a multiple six-figure enterprise.
Today Dr. Susan O’Malley is the owner and Medical Director of Sonas Med Spa in Madison, CT and a member of the National Speakers Association. She speaks from live and virtual stages to inspire women to reach high and work hard to make their dreams come true.
Here are three tips excerpted from her book on how women can achieve the lives of their dreams.
1. Look to the pain to find the calling. Some people will find their calling in their passion and it will be crystal clear right from the start. Others will find it in their pain. Dr. O'Malley says, "You might have been too hurt to embrace the lesson or too young to understand its significance. It’s there for all of us and we have to dig deep to find it. Trust me—we all have a purpose."
2. Success doesn’t come from a quick fix. It comes from hard work. Create a positive mindset, believe in a dream, and do the work to make it real. "Positive affirmations and manifesting miracles does not get the job done. No amount of meditation and no dream board will ever take the place of work and willpower."
3. Play to win. O'Malley says, "You can sit in the stands and watch, you can stand along the sidelines and give your opinion, you can wander aimlessly on the field hoping for the participation trophy or you can put on a helmet and get in the game. Are you willing to do whatever it takes to accomplish your goal? Are you ready to play to win?"
A final word of advice from O’Malley to aspiring tough cookies:
“Sometimes, it’s harder to make the decision to change than it is to actually follow through with the plan. Once you honor your own commitment, it will make the follow through a little easier.”
